We said goodbye to Maggie today, my 14 1/2 year old Australian Shepherd. She had been fighting lymphoma cancer for over 22 months. She was Mesa County’s second search dog, with my dog Klapatche as the first. Maggie enthusiastically did her job as a search dog in air scent and avalanche, and did it very well, with plenty of finds to her credit.
She also had many fellow doggie friends in SAR. As a young dog she made it a point to convince any dog she met to play with her, and they almost always did, as some of you remember!
Just wanted to let you know, and to thank everyone who sent healing thoughts to us over these 22 months.
Free dog, Maggie!
